Hi, I’m having an unusual problem regarding fasting. For some reason or another, I was feeling especially sinful/gluttonous so I made a promise to God to fast on Monday (I know one shouldn’t make promises to God because it puts oneself at risk of committing mortal sin, but I have a horrible habit of doing this anyway). Anyhow, so on Monday I fasted (ie one smallish meal) but then I thought, “That wasn’t that hard, God deserves more” so then I promised to fast on Tuesday (one normal meal, with a few extra servings of green beans, but I didn’t put any dressing on my salad so I guess it evens out). And then Tuesday afternoon I started worrying I’d inadvertently promise to overeat, which would cause me to gain weight (I’m a teenage girl if you can’t already tell so I promised to fast the following day (today- one pop-tart this morning and normal meal for dinner) This morning as I was leaving for school, my dad complemented me on how great I looked, and I figured I must’ve somehow lost weight in the last two days, though if I’d had it would’ve been a microscopic TEENY amount, and nothing serious. Anyhow, so then I promised to fast tomorrow because my dad and I have a very strained relationship and I’m willing to go to extremes to impress him. Yah…it seems I’ve become addicted to fasting. I don’t really mind, because losing a few pounds is always welcome, but I’m worried I’m fasting more for my own figure than the Glory of God. I’m also kind of stressed I won’t be able to stop promising fasting to God. Opinions???
